The four-race NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash is back for the 2018 season with an updated format. The program is only eligible to drivers competing for Xfinity Series driver points. Based on the revised participation guidelines for 2018, Monster Energy Series drivers will not be part of the field for the four Dash 4 Cash races. Talladega Superspeedway is new to the Dash 4 Cash schedule this year.
The top four Xfinity Series finishing regulars at Texas Motor Speedway on April 7 will be eligible for the Dash 4 Cash prize of $100,000 at Bristol Motor Speedway. The highest finishing driver of those four at Bristol wins the prize and will move on to have a shot at the prize at Richmond Raceway in addition to the top three finishing series regulars. This format continues for the races at Richmond, Talladega Superspeedway and Dover International Speedway (more details below on that).
Additionally, Comcast will donate $10,000 in goods in honor of Dash 4 Cash winners at each Dash 4 Cash market on behalf of their Internet Essentials program. For more information on that program, click here.
